So they were pretty amused when I told them that I went thrift shopping and got some stuff for them with $20 in my pocket. $15.55, to be exact. I got 2 pairs of jeans for Aidan and a pair of shorts for Lorelai. But best of all? I scored this sleeping bag for $8!
It's so thick and nice, and extra long...and reversible!
The boys each have a sleeping bag they've had out recently since a sleepover at Grandma and Grandpa's, so finding this was perfect timing. Now Lorelai has one of her own and they don't have to share. She was so excited to play in it, she could hardly wait for it to get out of the wash. They set up their bags for a mini "slumber party" during story time tonight, and we're already planning another one for the morning.
Goodwill for the win! (Again and again.)
PS: I'm pretty sure Macklemore made thrifting cool. There was a tween shopping with her mom, and a group of high school boys were leaving as I got there.
